Balance

For my space at Ten Women Gallery Venice, among the things that I create are my mosaic collages in shadow box frames. I choose a word and add the letters to each of the squares so it spells out the word and collage the squares using ephemera and mixed media stuff. The paper is usually paste paper designed by me as I like to keep everything authentic. I add short quotes that relate to the word and coordinate colors to give it an over all aesthetic quality.

My most popular piece is always "Gratitude". And, again it sold about 3 three weeks ago. The gal who purchased it called me to order custom mosaic collages for 3 of her friends each one personalized to their personalities. This is right up my alley. I love custom creating for the challenge of it. This is the first one I did for her...It's called "Balance".
